Oakland Unified desires to provide employees, community and partners timely information on collective bargaining with our employee unions.
OUSD's office of Labor Management
& Employee Relations (LMER)
leads the District's bargaining effort and will provide regular updates on the bargaining process with our teachers' union, the Oakland Education Association (OEA).
The most recent updates can be found on the LMER Bargaining Update Blog
to which you may also subscribe to receive regular email updates.
'Sunshining' of initial proposals
By law, both OEA and OUSD must "sunshine" their initial proposals at a public meeting. The purpose of the sunshine is to provide the public an opportunity to be aware and comment on proposals before bargaining begins. Both parties will sunshine their proposals at the January 29, 2014 school board meeting.
We will add additional information here in the future. You can also subscribe to the Bargaining Update Blog.
